    Beware Potpourri Group! Promoting Shopping Essentials
    Beware Potpourri Group which includes

    Back in the Saddle
    Expressions
    Catalog Favorites
    In Company of Dogs
    Nature's Jewelry
    NorthStyle
    Potpourri Gift
    Pyramid Collection
    Serengeti
    Stitchery
    Whatever Works
    Young Explorers

    They have supposed rebate coupons in CJ for affiliates to promote that are also plastered on their site. All it says is you will get details after checkout. Come to find out the $20 cash back is a Shopping Essentials offer.

    Worse:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&r...ssentials+scam

    Why would affiliates want to promote this, especially sending our visitors to a scam/competitor?

    I'm glad I pulled all their links when they dropped the commish to 5%. It's a shame, too, because their products work so well with my sites.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Connie. I think we're going to see a lot more of this type of nonsense now that the economy is in the crapper.

    Thanks Connie for the info. I have a few links up for them but I haven't been able to get them to convert. Time for these links to go bye-bye.

    Yeah, some will probably try to milk some quick dirty $$$ out of their sites before they close up shop.
